Re: Marvell out/Max questionable
This is not what you want to happen when your going up against the best front 4 in the league. Your O-line is in shambles, and that my friends has been the cause of your 3 game losing streak. A streak that could be 4 come Sunday.
I've been here all week talking football(and maybe a liitle smack), but I'll be honest with you guys...I had this game in the loss column for my bears since day one. Your defense is not too far behind ours, and while we may have a slight edge rushing, your overall offense is leap years ahead of ours. When you lost to the ravens I thought..."Division games are tough, and they were looking ahead to the colts." In the colt game I saw how bad(hurt) your O-line was. Big Ben had no time to throw. I didn't see the bengals game, but I know Ben's int's were due to pressure. Thats when I thought the bears have a good chance to win this game. The bears have 37 sacks this year, only 3 behind the league leading seahawks. The amazing thing about that number is that we hardly ever blitz. All the pressure is caused by our front four. I'll also say this. The bears aren't the better team, but they may be the better team now. If the bears do get the win I'll definitely take it, heck were only one game behind the seahawks for the 1st seed, but I know what would've happened if this game was played when you guys were healthy. I hate it when injuries take control of a promising season. It happened to the bears in 2002.
I've been a diehard bear fan for 30 years now, but my second favorite team has always been the steelers. The Steel Curtain, Bradshaw, Swan, Harris, Greene, Lambert, Blount, Shell, Ham...These are the guys who introduced me to football. Heck I even wore my LLoyd jersey to the bar for the colts game. Only when you guys play the bears do I root against you. So here's to a good clean game of hard hitting, smashmouth football played the way Papa Bear Halas intended it to be played. Let's all pray that the injury bug doesn't make a stop in Pittsburgh this weekend.
